Lotus World in Lao P.D.R

Mission Statement

Main goal of Lotus World in Lao P.D.R is that all children and youth can access to opportunities of education based on Right to education and supporting to develop the powers latent within them. In order to achieve the goals, Lotus World would make an effort to build educational environment with quality facilities and diverse activities as well as promote cooperation with local communities and participation of villagers.

Programme Description

Poverty headcount rate in Xieng Khuang takes the 5th in Laos, and its economic inequality is also fifth highest.  There are 1,977 primary school teachers in 414 primary schools. However, training program aimed at these teachers has been temporarily limited through private sector activities because of geographical locations and lack of budget. Ministry of Education and Sports in Lao P.D.R appointed proficient teacher based on evaluating teaching ability of teacher. But there are only 7 proficient teachers of all districts. It means Xieng Khuang province lacks proficient teachers significantly and shows strengthening of teacher abilities should be needed.

To alleviate this situation, Lotus World will raise awareness of education focused on primary school teachers, DEDC(District Education Development Committee) and VEDC(Village Education Development Committee) in Kham district. We expect that teachers could become proficient teachers rather than trained passively through training for strengthening of teacher’s capability. Teachers are expected to carry out various educational activities for teachers to guarantee educational rights for underprivileged children in the future. We also will support to improve educational environment. Educational materials and equipment for teaching and learning will be supported. We will follow the rules of Ministry of Education and Sports that all of materials and books support have to be approved in advance. At the same time, we will help the Village Education Development Committee improve the community education strategy based on rules of Lao authorities, traditional knowledge and culture, and empower the members to be sustained.
